san francisco programs. it is a convenient location for them but it is inappropriate to what that organization is trying to do. the grand jury went to a lot of effort to try to find the best option as to what should happen to the street artist program, in comparison to - to -- taking now appear £we discussed with several departments what possibilities exist. and after a lot of consideration, we agreed that the office of small business is the best fit. it tends to the needs of the sole proprietor interest of the street artist, and you can carry that forward from there. we think that the small business office will provide experienced business management, as part of its leadership, it will provide certainly needed program discipline, and it will certainly provide a better two-way communication system. so we would hope that you would agree with us that the small business administration is a much better fit to house the street artist program. and the fifth and final issue that we want to address is rather an odd issue. it's a contract that exists between the san francisco art com
in these two commissions to think about shadowing and parks in san francisco and to implement the intent of the voters and what the commissions elected to do in 1989 is adopt a memo that looked at certain parks, it created criteria, it created certain budget's limits of new shadowing on some of those parks and imposed on others said the no new shadow would be allowed, that was something -- prop k didn't spell that out to you, that was something that you decided as commissioners on how to implement prop k. you could have come up with an entirely different method, that's what you come up with, it's not set in stone, it's something that's flexible like the question that you raised earlier of how do you define what's an adverse impact under prop k, those are questions and sixes that are left to the authority of the commission to decide case by case, you could adopt definitions, you haven't done so, you have left the flexibility as you go through the future to decide them as you see fit. so, in the same way that under the 1989 memo, you created criteria in the first place, you have the abili

coming home to meet their families. they may never have been to san francisco. they may never have sailed under the golden gate bridge. they were coming into san francisco bay to reunite with their country men and families, in some cases to meet their newborn children. i found an amazing feat. to welcome the beautiful ships and we will have all kinds of ships at the waterfront, most of them passenger ships, a cup of them high recreation ships. but in addition to recognizing and experiencing those, i hope you will stop a man or woman in uniform on the program and and welcome them. and if you feel so inclined, please buy them a meal. so, thank you very much.

shaffer, i'm a resident of san francisco and i'm also a member of the sheet metal workers 104. i think the project is going to have minimum impact from shadows, i thought it was really interesting when we watched the shadows moving across justin herman plaza, how the areas where the people were sitting was where the shadows were, so i think that we have a chance here of creating a nice, small environment in other areas of town and the people will actually gravitate towards the shadows. if that's not the way it would be, then what i would like is that all these tall buildings are being built south of market so that the waterfront is available for expansion for more open space if we want people to sit out in the sun, but i think people like to sit in the shade, so i support this project. i hope you do too. >> commissioner jim lazarus, i'm also here as xhair to have citizen's advisory committee but i first want to tell you, i'm sure some of you have smart phones on, top of the fifth, 6-0 giants on opposing grand slam.

board very often. and, you know, for a city that's like san francisco supposed to be very democratic your procedures are actually not very democratic at all when you compare them to other major cities. so that's something you also should be aware of. i just really think that it's not a friendly inviting thing to do, to chastise members of the public for how they give you public comment unless they are really really over the top, yelling, saying rude inappropriate things, which i didn't hear anybody doing tonight. i heard them expressing opinions with passion. they didn't necessarily -- i think you have to be respectful of the public. >> president chiu: next speaker please. >> my name is greg cayman. i actually wanted to echo what steve hill said. i may not be as eloquent but i too was pretty taken aback at some of the comments of the supervisors in particular, you know, supervisor from district 4. you know, i was really taken aback at how vicious, how mean spirited some of her comments were, berating some of the people in public comment. >> president chiu: if i could -- >> we don't w
